Yardage will require about 200 to 250 yards of each colour.

Can be knit larger by either switching to 6 ply and larger needles or adding one more squid to your round.

Gauge and needle size are approximate. If you knit tightly, try a US 2. If you strand knit loosely or want a smaller sock, try a US 1 or even smaller.

Stranded knitting must be done loose enough to allow for stretch. If you find you knit too tightly in stranded knitting, you can try knitting inside out. It is important to trap the secondary colour every so often in the large spaces between squids. Again, be sure to do so LOOSELY.

This pattern has been test knit but may still contain the odd error. I do my best to ensure an error free sock and will update if and when any errors are found.
